Driven by Service

About us

ground roots

Started in 1981 AC Crampton Engineering Supplies was birthed in Pietermaritzburg, KZN. Through the years our business has gained a large customer base in Pietermaritzburg with this now filtering in to customers through KZN and into other parts of South Africa.

Our business is built on two core principles

  1. We are “Driven by Service”
  2. We are “Family”

Driven by service

Being Driven by Service means every one of our team go the extra mile! Whether it means moving mountains to get a delivery to you on time or to get you the best product at the best price our team is here to serve you, our customer.

We at AC Crampton have become family! This doesn’t just happen but it is something we have fought to become! As staff you are not just a number but part of the family and we truly believe that because of this our customers are drawn into our family when dealing with us.

We believe there is still so much business to be done so our commitment is to always be improving and innovating to bring you the best! 

What we do

anything and everything

What started off as an “engineering supply” company in 1981, has developed into a powerhouse of trade and industry. A.C. Crampton has become the name synonymous in the industry for its great service and delivery in any and all fields.

Whilst we have still held true to the core “engineering supply” part of our business, we have grown and developed into so much more than that. Always trying to change and be innovative, in these trying and challenging times, we have opened up several new and exciting divisions in the business enabling us to become a “one stop shop” to our 500 plus client’s country wide.

The team behind it

more than staff
we are family

Bringing you more than 300+ years combined experience, you can rest assured that you are in capable hands. The men and women, both customer facing and behind the scenes work tirelessly to keep each department running smoothly and effectively. Ensuring that all the I’s are dotted and all the T’s are crossed, makes them a special part of keeping our family running optimally!
